Once upon a time there were eight little girls and Hve little boys
x ho started ln school together. They had very jolly times but one
little girl stopped because she wasn't able to come in from the country.
Later another little boy and little girl stopped, the boy going to Hunt-
lngton to work for the railroad company, and the little girl to Island
City to keep house t'or one.
All went merrily on for the rest of the year, but the next year the
little circle was broken by one girl and two little boys, wno went
away, trying to find a better school. Another little boy and girl did
not return. but a little girl came from Fargo, North Dakota, to join
the little hunch.
The next year the little girl who went to find a better school,
came back, finding out that the E. H. S. was the bestg but the boys did
not return-one went to farming and the other to roaming. Two more
girls joined the jolly circle. One was the Elgin girl who had been
:attending school awaf' :ind had i'CllIl'i out that she did not have to
leave Sonic to go to school: the other was at lttle girl who livrd in
North Powder and hearing of our fine class came and joined it. Our
only boy stopped ut thc end ofthe first term. All the friils' tfnrs forlfl
rot hold him. A little later two little girls stopped school, one going
with her folks to llill City. Kansas, to live and the other stopping
on account of sickness. That left only five little girls to finish.
'l'lie next year, our last, we had only five, the one returning who
stopped on account of sickness, and the other Secured dnrlniz the

Lanrcsc liailey came from Iowa several years ago, going to North
Powder, where she lived until she came to Elgin, in the fall of 1908.
Laurose is liked by all who know her, she is very jolly, always ready
to have some fun, or play a joke on somebody, Altho' she is full of
fun, she is always ready with her lessons and the teachers always
know she will give some kind of an answer.
Mamie Clare Frances Pepper came from iowa when but a small
child. She started in the primary grade here and went through the
public school and high school, with the exception of one year at
Pendleton and one year at Enterprise. She is our brightest pupil and
is always present with her happy smile, teasing somebody or inquir-
ing about something. She is very sedate and will make a model
Hazel Smith came from Nebraska at an early age and settled in
La Grande, where she lived several years, when she moved to Elgin
and entered the fourth grade. She has been going here ever since,
with the exception of one winter she spent in California. Haze-l is
the quiet girl of the seniors. She is always ready to help anybody
who needs it
Lillian Morris came to Elgin from Fargo, North Dakota, in the
fall of 1907. Altho' having lived here so short a time, it seems :is if
she has always been with us. Lillian is the chubby one of the class:
she is like the old saying: "Short and sweet and hard to beat."
Nona Marie Austin came to Elgin from Utah in May, of 1898.
entering the second grade. She has been going here ever since. with
the exception of one term spent at the Weston Normal. Nona is the
lankey one of the seniors and always very quiet.
SENIOR CLASS SONG
'She first senior class meets here once again,
The five faithful maidens of nineteen hundred and ten
And tho' high school days are now nearly gone-
We like to think oier the pleasures we've known.
And long may our fond hearts recall with great cheer.
The feelings which bound us in sweet friendship here.
And tho' with no medals we can honor you
We've tried to be faithful and loyal and true,
And if we have not always been in the right
The chief interest at heart was the purple and white.
But when we have launched in the world's sea we'll try
To gain reverence and fame for you, Elgin High.
When time for parting comes, we must confess
We will always be proud of our dear E. H. S.
And when Father Time goes fleeting fast
We will think of the schoolmates we loved in the past.
So now our real message to you we will tell
And bid teachers and scholars a fond farewell.
-E. L. Morris, '10.

One evening as I sat smoking my old cob pipe, there drifted be-
fore me a vision of the Elgin High School. As it happened it was
exactly twenty years since our class assembled together in the old
school room for the last time. As my thoughts wander, the first one
of my class mates that entered my vision was Nona Austin. Tonight
I seemed to see Nona sitting by an open fire place: she was reading
to a middle aged gentleman who had very light hair, and it dawned
on me that this gentleman was no other than Roy Hardy. I knew Roy
very well in my school days and I was very glad to know that he was
Nona had decided to spend the remainder of their lives together.
Next in my dream I beheld Clare Pepper. In the old school days
Nona and Clare were always together, and tonight it seemed quite
natural for Clare to be the next one to come into my mind. Nona had
told her several times that she ought to be a foreign missionary and
it seemed as though she had followed her advice, for tonight I could
see her standing in a pulpit, and in front of her sat a lot of heathens,
who looked as though they were very much interested.
Now something very strange appeared to me. In my school days
I never once thought but what Lillian Morris would be the first of our
class to be married: but tonight I could see her sitting alone on a
veranda, softly humming a song to herself. At her feet lay a beautiful
Scotch collie, and by her side sat a proud parrot, which was saying:
"Don, where art thou?" Lillian was the very picture of happiness.
and really she looked very sedate as she sat there, dressed in her
Now Laurose Bailey's smiling face came into my vision. Laurose
had always been quite a complex problem and tonight I could not
quite work out what Laurose's occupation was. I seemed to see her
walking down a broad street, and by her side was a hearty gentleman,
and if I judged from the loving glances she gave him, he was her
husband. . '
Last of my class mates was Hazel Smith. Mr. Bailey always
prophesied that Hazel would be the most successful one of our class
and it seemed as though he had prophesied rightly, for I could see
her in the broad streets of London and in her hand was a music roll,
which told me that she was studying music, as she had always told
her class mates she hoped to do.
Then I could hear Miss Greene playing: "What's the use of
Dreaming?" And there my pipe went out,

May each and all have a successful life.

HISTORY OF CLASS 1911
It was in the fall of 1907 that 18 happy, free fron cire youngsters
bounded into the orlice of Prof. Rinehart, saying that thav were ready to
be admitt.ed as Freshmen into the E. H. S. It did seem hard for Mr.
Rinehart to letall of those children into the H. S. but when they showed
such astonishingly good marks, he willingly let the-in enter and so they
were registered, some to go on perhaps to finish, some to drop by the
The way the freslvnen studied was known from their remarkable good
grades. Miss Pitman thought they were the most studious hunch she had
-ver seen. But bye and bye they became delinquent with their studies.
Some might inquire for the reason, a reason thev certainly did have:
That was foot hall. It may sound small but it sweoily is, was and ever

member of the class.
There were nine in the class at the beginning of the Sophomore year-
four boys and five girls. The year vias not so very eventful, save for the
practical jokes of some jolly mem bei of the class played upon some un-
suspecting friends or some of the funny cartoons drawn by Jay Stevenson,
the artist of the class.
One of the most pleasant events was the trip to La Grande to view

boulders and enjoying the swell spread.

wandering fever and he has been roaming about ever since. Overton

LEGEND OF THE
Should you ask whence these youngsters,
Whenoe these children and these babies
With the manners of the cowboyg
With the impudenec of Satan:
I should answer, I should tell you,
From the towers of lnion county
l repeat them as I heard them,
F'i om the lips of Father Bailey,
The pzofessor, the big fat man.
:should you ask him where tall, young A
Found his gill so sweet and loving,
I should answer I should tell you
In a log house full of spirits
In an old and haunted canyon.
If still further you should ask me
Where our darling little Melvin
Found his cigarettes and sweethearts
I should answer, I should tell you,
ln the lodges of the Pastime,
In the main street of the city.
Listen to the Freshman legend,
To this song of little Freshlesg
l?uth, whose heait is fresh and simple,
Who beliexes that in all classes
Every human heart is human.-
Evsn 'ntongsi the high school teachers.
There me three who love big hunting,
Lynn and liarold, Ehlnney, too.
Should you ask me how they hunted.
Where they went and all about it,
I should answer.l should tell you.
To the forests and the prairies,
To the big lake of Wallowa,
To thehig hills where the ticks bite,
To the lands where the bears and the Coyotes
Feed upon the boys' provisions.
Fhould you ask me why Miss Lulu
Looks so very sad and lonesome,
I should answer, I should tell you
I' ' .V

Dont you know the time when Buster
Went to Huntington, the small town,
Where she met her little Harvey,
Where she met her only treasure.
Should you ask me why our Lillie
Turns her head to look behind her.
I should answer, I should tell you
'Tis because her Leroy blushes,
'Tis because he smiles so sweetly.
'Tis no wonder that our girlie '
Turns her head to look behind her.
I repeat this as I heard it
From the lips of brave young Reinhold,
Our young freshie, our young Dutchman
Should you ask me why our Jesse
Looks so earnest and sincere,
Looks as though he might succeed Taft,
I should answer, I should tell you
Dons you see him 'round the autos?
When he is a man he'll buy one.
Fbould you ask me if this ended
Ml our freshies' little band,
If there were so small a number,

Go you down on Third street,
Go you into the large brick school hous
Go you to your left and see there
All the freshies's little number.
Ethel Baker's smiles will greet you,

Doing as they are commanded.

CHRISTMAS ONE HUNDRED YEARS HENCE
On Christman Eve, in the year nineteen hundred nine, in the
little town of Elgin, I crawled sleeplly to bed, and was soon soundly
wrapped In slumber, never to awake, it was though by many.
It was one cold Christmas Eve one hundred years from the time
I had fallen into my deep slumber that I awoke. I was surrounded
by many happy beings. They all seemed unaware of my presence
and when I began to stir ilt had a tendency to frighten them, and
all ran away and leI't me. I lay there and waited, what seemed to
me many years, but in reality was only a few minutes, when one of
the enchanted being slowly creeping started toward the place where I
lay. At last he reached me and sat there a while, eyeing me. Then.
as If a sudden thot had struck him. he nut out a soft, velvetv hand
and stroked me gently on the cheek. At this time I could not keep
from moving, for my heart was filled with joy at Iinding something
that would not he afraid of me. When he began to talk I asked him.
"what he was." He answered that he was one of the inhabitants
of America, llvlng In the city of Elgin. which he said had a popula-
tlon of one mllllon, Then I began to notice him and saw that he was
blessed wit ha pair of wings. which I had ollten wished for. I then
asked him what he meant by referring to my days. He said he ineant
the time a. hundred years beforeg it was now Christmas Eve of the
year 2U09. I then asked what everbady was so happy about. Ho
answered that everybody was happey every day. but today they were
extra happy on account of it being Christmas. I thot that I had been
wandering around upon our globe and had accidently stumbled off
into a world of fairies one hundred years ahead of ours. But he
assured me that I was wrong.
The next morning when I awoke the sun was Shining in upon
my face and I heard these people talking of gifts they had received.
My first thot was of the happy times I had had when Christmas came
before, and I asked them who brot their Christmas gifts. The answer
came in one low, sweet tone from one troat, "Santa Claus."
At last I thought I would get up. They told me I was too old.
but in spite of their protestations I hopped nimbly out of bed, deter
mined to explore the world about me. 'The streets were paved,and
I looked up into the sky and saw many big birds which the fairy prin-
ces told me were a.eroplanes. This sight brot the thot to my mind
and I asked how Santy traveled now. They told me he had the same
tcam of reindeers and the same old sled of old. This surprised me
and I wanted to know why Santa Claus had not progressed in the
way of transportation as well as the others. They answered that he
suited the people best the way he had always been. ,
After we had breakfast we went out and explored the city of
Elgin and I saw many inventions, which I had never dreamed of be-
fore, and which are too numerous to mention. My enjoyable compan-
ions told me, with glad heart that the U. S. was like it used to be.
ahead of the other nations in l11OSt everything. After returning to
our home we had some wood goose. plum pudding, and many other
things that would make your mouth water. if mentioned. so I will
not grieve you by telling of them. The afternoon was spent talking
of old times. So passed the merry Christmas of 2009.

The idea of having a German club first entered our heads that
evening when we with trembling knees went up to see llliss Greene
to take German exams-and stayed to eat Welsh Raraebit and study
the phschyology of hypnotism. Our first meeting was held at Haze.
Smiths, where we decided upon "Die 'Lusttigen Deutschenu as a name
and HIIIIIHGI' Lustig Voran' as our motto, with red. black and white
the colors of the German Hag, as our colors. Our meetings tool
place after school and we have had many an enjoyable time gathered
at some L. D's home, playing German games, or listening to Miss
Greene read German stories wi-th those brilliant German jokes, that
we, like true "Dutchmen," would forget to laugh at until the next day.
We didn't attempt much in a social way, the German party being
the only affair of tha-t character. lt was held at the Knights of
Pythias hall the last of January. The program, in German, was given
by the club members, which we hope our guests enjoyed. This was
Followed by playing German games, and later a "German" supper,
which didn't differ so very much from our American feed, for eating
is the same the world over. "Aber wir hat Wiener wursts und Deut

With the coming of spring, annual board meetings, commence-
ment, etc, the German club was disorganized. Here's wishing the
club of next year as pleasant times as we have enjoyed.

GIRLS GLEE CLUB
Secretary and Treasurer-Clare Pepper.
The High School Glee Club was organized during the second
week of school under the direc-tion of Miss Greene and included in
its membership all high school girls who wished to join, beside:
members from the teaching corps and grammer rooms. Miss Greene
took quite a task in attempting to d1'i1l a crowd of girls, the ma--
jority of whom had had 110 previous training, but you have only to
hear our girls sine' to know how ably she managed. The girls fur-
iiished entertainment for a number of lodge and school affairs this
winter and have had many enjoyable times "amusing" the public.
The "Dream," a spectacular entertainment given the 19th dgiy
of February, under the auspices of the Glee Club and the direction
of Mrs. Roijker, of the Chicago Art School, was a decided success
and netted the club a neat sum of money. The popular pa 1 of thc
"Dream" were the different choruses by the Glee Club and me pan-
tomine "The Bache1or's Dream," which completed the performance.
This organization was held together througout the entire school
year and has made considerable progress. We hope they may all be
together again as strong as ever.

The foot hall situation in Elgin High School has been, to put it mildly,
interesting. Every game played during the past season was liercely
tought, while the most exciting contests came over games that were never
During the foot ball season, however, excitement is th e rule everywhere
among high school. From the lirst of September till after Thanksgiving,
the balls of the school building frequently echoed to the songs and yells of
enthusiastic foot hall fans The team worked hard on the practice-tield
while the rooters enthused in-doors.

loud as ever they could. The rooters were on their way to show what
good they could do bv yelling to encourage the players.
A good Elgin delegation met. in the grand stand when the game was
called, and their rooting was sutlicient to let the La Grande people know
of their presence. The Game was thrilling from start to linish and ended
with a score of 0 to0.
The next game was played against Cove on our home territory. A got d
deal of scrapping livened up this contest which resulted in a score of 10 In
6 in favor ofthe visiting team.
Our boys next went to Enterprise to try their luck. Here the result
was the same as at La Grande. This made up the tale of Elgin's foot,
ball season of 1909.
PHYSICAL CULTURE CLUB
The Physical Cluture Club includes all that all girls have eve'
attempted along athletic lines. Perhaps the work is 11ot considered
so very "athletical" atlter all, by the boys, especially by those who
always would peak in the door on "physical torture" night to watcl
the fun. And even though some of us were dreadfully stupid in
catching on to the new steps we have gained a. great deal oi' recre-
ation and pleasure from our meetings.
The club was organized during the first of the school year with
Miss Greene as director. lt was decided to xneet cn lllondays and

With the coming of spring it was thought that it would he more
pleasant if we could have out door work, so efforts are being made
to form a tennis club to play tennis through the last few weeks ol'
school and during vacation.
The mos-t interesting features of the club work are the fancy
marching and the Indian Club swinging, but both will take mor'
practice than a year to make perfect. However, our :girls are prof
gressing rapidly and the work has helped them greatly.

For weeks before the play was given you would hear the gentle
voices of the different members in every nook and corner rehearsing
their parts in a most dramatic tone of voice. Almost every night
they would bring Professor out in the blustery weather. This took
place for a period of some five weeks, and great expectations were
aroused, and not only the school but loyal citizens of the town "sat
up and took notice" to such extent that when the night arrived the
largest house up to that time greeted the play troupe.
lt was December 22d and the comedy drama "BRAC" presented
by the High School Theatrical "Troupe" was produced i11 what pioved
to be a most interesting andpleasing performance. The curtair
arose at 8:30 p. m. The principal feature of the first act was Brac
The second act was considered the best of the entire play. Two
old maids were considered the best of the act. The peculiar cos-
tumes of the two old maids caused a loud smile to pass over thr
audience. Clarisa Avery's exclamation of "Oh, Ransom! I shall pre-
spire! I know I shall!" brought down the house.
In the third act the way in which Anna Blake exclaimed, "I
have tested your love too long." and turned John Perkins down wart
received with great applause.
Laurose Bailey as leading lady and Roy Frashier as leading
man delivered their parts exceptionally well. lt was said by thosf
present that "BRAC" ls one of the best plays ever given in Elgin.

THE B. B. CLUB
Secretary- Nona Austin.
The B. B. Club is the mystery of the Elgin High School. Ono
clear October evening the curiosity of several of the high school
l:oys was aroused by seeing a band of girls, in High School caps,
inarchill single nie down the street with suppressed giggles. On
inquiring the only answer they could gain as to the meaning oi
such a procession was, UO. they are only the B. B's," which ol'
course enlightened them greatly. If they could only have seen thee?
same girls a few minutes later as they lounged in the middle of the
fioor around a huge hish of pop corn at Hazel SmDth's, and heard
the deep f??J secrets they might have been wiser. Perhaps somf
people remember the dignified names with which, at the Valentin
party, they attempted to explain the meaning of B. B. Here are
some of the shining examples: Beautiful Bunch, Boy Bouncers, Busy
Bees, Bed 'Bugs, Baby Buntings, Broncho Busters, Bon Ton Beauties,
Blessed Bunch, Babbling Babies, Bouncing Beauties, Black Beau-
ties. The club membe1's alone know how to appreciate these noble
In the middle of January a "Stag" party was given at the home
of Lillian Morris in honor of the .lunior girls, with Miss Greene as
chaperone. The program consisted of wading thzough snow deep
enough to allow one to believe she was- about 'to discover the North
Pole. Bushels of fun oyster soup, roasted peanuts, and the next
day a bunch of rather pale looking girls. .
During the winter the members met at their different 'ies to
transact business. The following are some oi the rules made an

5-Always address club members under club name under pen-

6-Don't tell any club secrets, to Juniors under death penalty
The big public event of the club was the Valentine Party at
Larouse Bailey's at which the .lunion Class, ll. H. Faculty, and sev-
eral town boys were present. In the "proposal stunt" the boys
proved that they were game and Elgin girls need never fear that
they will have to wait for "Leap Year" to win a heart and home.

This is our first annual, our first attempt to get before the public
in print. lt representes the energy and the effort of the Elgin High
School managedby the Senior class. We know that like all
other first efforts, there must be mistakes in it., all of which we hope
you will kindly overlook, remembering that the material as well
as the work has been gathered by school grlsg girls with high ideals
but not of sufficient breadth and experience to stay clear of all errors
In work of this character where something has to be said it may
be at times, unintentionally, there may work in things which are not
alltogether agreeable, but in this case we beg leave to assure you
that we have made no intentional aim at any one person with a view
of hunting his feelings.
Our difficulties have been too numerous to mention and yet wr
flatter ourselves that nothing good ever comes into this world except
it brings with it an amount of trouble equal to the good. To be
specific, however, the question as to who should publish the annua
came first, the resignation of our business manager second, and the
general misunderstanding growing out of these two momentous difli-
culties together with a lack of knowledge of t.he purpose and scope
of the annual might be mentioned as the third. Taking all of this at
once it nearly put a stop to our work. Too much cannot be said in
praise of our strongest and best business manager, who without
ouestion or quibble gave us their financial support. We feel that tr
them, along with our helpful school mates, we are especially indebted.

AS OTHERS SEE US
First is Edna with eyes of brown,
Oh, she's the smartest girl in town,
She stands at tl1e head of our class.
And a right and bonny lass.
Next is a little boy, funny Ben,
He is always slow but sure.
lf he tails at first he tries again,
For "blues" he's absolute cure.
Next is Myrtle, sincere and true,
Who cares not for books and boys,
Burt likes to tell of her ponies too.
And of Caesars wars with all their joys.
Then comes Fulton, sober as a judge.
l'le's good and respectable, though
if the house were buring he wouldn't budge,
Yet in Latin and English he's not slow.
"here is Beatrice, such a busy young girl,
We all like her fine, indeed,
But she sets us in quite a whirl,
Her recor-d's made for speed.
Next is Bobbie, so tall and slim.
He says such funny things:
We hold a warm spot. in our heart for him.
He'll face the world for a smile with its stin
Now comes Bethel, our girl of books:
We'rc the three little .Iuniors and a jolly lot,
There are lletta and Mabel and little Dot.
We are always merry and full of cheer.
For ncxt year's to be our Senior year.
Mabel gets lonesome and is sometimes blue.
And llettie at periods gets a streak on her too.
llnt Dotty most generally, so solemn and kind,
Says, "Oh, tice! cheer up. come on, You don't mind."
R. M. '13,
She writes the nicest stories,
And gets her grade in spite of crooks,
And in spite of her fret and worries.
Next is Olive. so loyal and so brave,
She comes to school three milesg
Who says we do not for knowledge crave,
Knows nothing about her trials.
Then there is Hughey who never frets,
General History is her stand by,
She pays for all the praise she gets
For she's a worker, My! Oh My!
Next is Elsie, ours we say.
But she does such funny things
She may soon be stolen away,
For jokers frequently grow wings,
Here we have Edith, with eyes of blue,
Who speaks so soft 'and low.
Ask her anything. when'er you do
She's always sure to know.
